Cilantro-Garlic Shrimp

Just like everyone else out there, the cooks here at Vanilla Bean are trying to trim a few inches from their waistlines. Honestly, I don't care where the inches come from, I just want them gone. When I stick to it, I've found that Weight Watchers works for me and helps keep me on track. One of the most difficult things is finding something that is healthy, good AND that Jeff will eat. This recipe in WW's latest magazine/cookbook Five Ingredient 15 Minute Recipes immediately jumped out at me. It was light and fresh. Jeff loved it. And, what is even better, it was so simple and fast to make. We made it in under 15 minutes!
